Newspaper Front Pages: The Day After the Elections

I’ve been looking around for sites with photos of today’s newspapers. There are a couple of good sites with lots of pictures:

Overall, the quality of front page designs is excellent. There is one newspaper cover that stands out to me though, is the Chicago Sun-Times.

I really think this is the perfect cover. A great photograph. A simple two words. A grand statement, wrapped in restraint. Beautiful.

The runner-ups are the St. Petersburg Times, Statesmen journal, and Virginian-Pilot.

Honorable mentions go to the following covers:

Lastly, I have to make mention of the Boston Herald and its never-ending pursuit of the perfect tabloid-style front page.

Best Obama Quote

There are definitly some really interesting insights into both presidential campaigns coming out of the woodwork today. An article from Newsweek, Hackers and Spending Sprees, lists serveral interesting tidbits.

My favorite of the group is this quote from Obama while he was preparing for one of the primary debates (emphasis added):

I don’t consider this to be a good format for me, which makes me more cautious. I often find myself trapped by the questions and thinking to myself, ‘You know, this is a stupid question, but let me … answer it.’ So when Brian Williams is asking me about what’s a personal thing that you’ve done [that’s green], and I say, you know, ‘Well, I planted a bunch of trees.’ And he says, ‘I’m talking about personal.’ What I’m thinking in my head is, ‘Well, the truth is, Brian, we can’t solve global warming because I f—ing changed light bulbs in my house. It’s because of something collective‘.

I’m glad this type of stuff is leaking out.
